Default "squeal" slow down "pop"......

so when i'm on the interstate if i go 65mph or under i havent heard it, but if i go 66mph+ i hear it(squeal) then while i slow down it sounds like my tires are "swampers" and i hear a "pop" and its all good, i just changed the pass. side hub and noticed the break pads are wearing on the rotor at an angle, meaning the outside pad is dead nuts in the middle of the rotor and the inside pad is rubbing with a little of the pad off of the bottom of the rotor. i tried to draw an image in paint going to see if you can see it, the red is the pad contact area of the pass side rotor. im not saying this is the issue but things i have found out. but im still stumped why this is happening.

the body had 150k the pads when i did the hub on the pass side looked not to old, and that another thing is the rotors are warped, the truck was used for a tree cutting service so its been abused
